extent that san francisco can be proud of so many things, one of the things that i am very proud of when i think of san francisco is the fact that we have always been at the forefront of civil rights and at the forefront of lgbt rights. and there is a place in this world where i hope the city would be open to recognizing the contributions of an openly ldbt person. i would hope that that place would be san francisco. one of the things that struck me about this conversation is something that we learn about harvey milk. when he was first elected, he understood the significance of his election. i would like to share with you a part of what he said. it goes, the hope speech often talk about. this is what he said to use his own words: "two days after i was elected i got a phone call and the voice was quite young. it was from al tuna, pennsylvania. the person said things. you have to elected a people so that young child and thousands of people know that there is hope for a better tomorrow." without hope, gays, blacks, seniors, the "ss" give up. without hope life is not worth living. harvey

buildings. i will like to thank the san francisco department association and housing rights, and my legislative staff for doing hard work on this ordinance. the hazards of secondhand smoke as we heard earlier well documented. is a killer of 49,000 people each year, 3,000 from lung cancer, 46,000 from heart disease. the smoke seeps into your unit. this can result in a prospective tenant finding out that they are exposed to secondhand smoke after they signed the lease. this policy will allow prospective tenants to make informed decision about the unit under consideration and if it meets their needs disclosure also benefits landlords. the smoke-free housing policy requires that owners designate units is either smoke-free or smoke, optional. no leases can be change midway. once the designations are made owners must include the designation, and to any applicant prior to entering the lease agreement. this list will be updated and available to all tenants. for owners of 50 units or less in the city have one year to comply; orders of 50 units or more have two years. this ordinance would bri

that was released yesterday. as you know in 2009, the mta board approved the san francisco bike plan. the adequacy of the environmental impact report supporting this approval was challenged in an appeal to the board of supervisors and an action in superior court. in 2010, the san francisco superior court ruled in the city's favor. the challengers appealed this ruling to the california court of appeals. just the california court of appeals issued a decision upholding the trial court's conclusion that the eir was adequate in all respects. the court also identified some minor technical problems with the approval process. the city attorney's office is evaluating those issues. we expect they can be resolved soon and without disruption to the sfmta's bicycle program. >> mr. yee, before you go on, i have been advised by the city attorney, this is something that we can't discuss today because it's not agendized. so we could at the next meeting in february, is that right? thank you go ahead, mr. yee? >> instructor: would like to introduce a couple of new senior staff, which you have personall
